This paper describes the constitution and activities of the ISCA Speech Synthesis Special Interest Group, SynSIG. It summarises past achievements and suggests ways in which future development could be maintained. The aims of the Special Interest Group on Speech Synthesis are to promote the study and diffusion of knowledge about speech synthesis in general, in a number of ways including: dedicated web pages, a mailing list, a bibliographic database, organisation of workshops on specific themes, exchange of students, and helping to co-ordinate sessions on speech synthesis in international conferences and workshops. The international and multi-disciplinary nature of the SIG also provides a means for diffusing information both to and from the different research communities involved in the synthesis of various languages.
